Eckington Cubs made a splash at the Dronfield district swimming Gala after they were named as overall winners of the competition.

Four groups took part in the event at Eckington Swimming Pool which included a variety of races including front-crawl, backstroke, breastroke, mixed relays and even a non swimmers race in the shallow end.

The emphasis of the evening was inclusivity of all abilities and to have fun.

Sixth Eckington Cub Pack had 14 Cubs who worked well as a team to win the Medley Relay and the overall contest.

Robert, a nine-year-old cub said “It was great fun doing this event with all my friends cheering and I can’t wait to show the shield to my friends at school.”

Steve Judge Cub Scout Leader said: “This event really promotes everybody to have a go, what Scouting is all about.

“The group is doing well with numbers of young people and we are always looking out for additional adult helpers. “
